This activity requires:
-A variety of paper airplane templates
The directions are easy to follow, but they do require some reading. When I did this activity I printed off 4 different airplane templates and had my students choose which one of the four that they wanted to make and then I put the class in small groups based on the planes they they choose, so that the students could work together to build their planes.
More ideas for your paper airplanes:
This would be a great sports day event or big/little buddy activity. Students could also decorate their planes before they build them. I also printed off extra airplane templates for students to take home.
